Culture Is Our Best Product

We are passionate about building solutions based on open source software and understand that our employees are core to the products we make, the customers we support, and the open source communities we serve. We are positive and supportive in our work environment and believe in helping each other with openness, honesty and respect. Activators have the opportunity to continually innovate, pursue passion projects and grow their careers.

Be Part of a Diverse, Inclusive Team

ActiveState is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion. We foster an environment where the thoughts and views of everyone are supported. This goal starts at the top with our Executive Committee and permeates throughout our great organization. Treating each other with respect and making great products that just work is what we are all about.

Drive to the Goal Line with Complete Transparency

We’re firm believers that alignment towards common goals requires complete transparency. From our ActiveState Playbook to quarterly departmental metrics and financial performance, we “open the books” to all Activators in our monthly meetings. Voice your thoughts and feedback in our daily polls, regular employee surveys or face-to-face with our open-door policy.

Be Healthy on Your Own & With Your Team

Start your day off right with a healthy breakfast from our fully-stocked kitchen. You’ll always find a good mix of healthy snacks and treats to soothe your cravings. Shakes, a beer fridge, espressos and more will keep you fueled throughout the day. Our ActiveVentures get you out of the office enjoying what Vancouver has to offer and give you a chance to socialize with your teammates in diverse settings.
